Dear Readers: A long time supporter of the Mystagogy Resource Center has informed me that they would like to donate $3000 to help me continue the work of this ministry, but they will only do it as a matching donation, which means that this generous donation will only be made after you help me raise a total of $3000. If you can help make this happen, it will be greatly appreciated and it would be greatly helpful to me, as I have not done a fundraiser this year. If you enjoy the work done here and want to see more of it, please make whatever contribution you can through the DONATE link below. Thank you!
(Total So Far - Day 11: $2740)

Holy Thirty-Eight Martyrs of Thrace

Holy 38 Martyrs of Thrace (Feast Day - August 23)

Verses

Three times ten martyrs bore the sword,
Having with them a simple eight fellow contestants.

The Holy Thirty-Eight Martyrs of Thrace met their end by a sword.

These may be the same as the Holy Martyrs Severus and Memnon and the Thirty-Seven Martyrs of Thrace commemorated on August 20th.
